SPARC Europe is a membership organisation for European research libraries and research organisations

Our mission

Our mission is to create change and build a better scholarly communication system for the future.

Our work

Our work is focused on achieving Open Access. We believe we can do this best by means of:

  • Advocacy and education: we participate in workshops, conferences and advisory bodies, make presentations and provide advocacy material on Open Access.
  • Working with policy makers: we work to influence Open Access policy development at national and European level.
  • Networking: we work with other organisations to build effective networks of strong voices that can make change happen.
